We journey inward to self, unleashing hidden fears or hidden strengths. Setting our intentions of self, we set intention for the global canvas of life. As our reality changes so to our world around us changes. As we heal, the world heals.
Holding our own, we are holding space for the greater cosmos. Focusing our intent on clearing our space, we allow healing to take place. As healing within our own space commence, healing and a grandeur plain takes place. At level of self we heal the world.
It is through our own intentions that we share light of hope. In the flicker of hope, others may light from this…passing it onto another. It is said we stand in front of 10,000 possibilities. Meaning for every change we make, there are 10,000 people behind us that are effected. If this is so, what do we intend on doing for self?
Stepping into the Canvas setting Intention. In setting intention, painting a new canvas…a new reality. A thousand realities merge into a single reality of our own.
As we step into the canvas of self, we paint a brighter picture for the world.~Ani Po
It is not our job to fix the world for it does not need fixing. What the world needs is work at the level of self. Healing self, Healing the world.
Through our inward journey of self-realization, we come to a conclusion that the world is as perfect as it is going to get. How we see it will change and how we feel will surely change. It is through self discovery and self-care we find happiness in any given moment. No matter the circumstance, we will find peace and happiness.
As we learn and grow at level of self, the world around us shifts. The world does not need help in fixing itself, but may require more awareness of others. Maintaining self, we learn to extend the same courtesy to mother earth.
We shift, the world shifts. We heal, the world heals. The world around us is merely an extension of self. As we step into the canvas we are stepping into awareness of self and the world around us.
There is a place of no names
There are no pens to write
No brushes to paint
No Canvas to create.
A place of darkness
A place without void or form.
Not for the faint-hearted
For there is nothing.
No quad shot four pump venti lattes
For there is a thought which emerges, allowing a reality to exist.
A thought which fuels a whole cosmos into form.
It is this place of knowing the center is within us and possibilities endless.
Within our darkness, we retreat to a brighter place.
Beginning with a spark…exploding to a raging fire.
Let it be so.
Stepping into the Canvas with no thoughts…but one. An idea or thought that meets at a level of the heart. Through gratitude and joy, intention and action…we emerge in an eternal bliss of happiness. How can it begin with a single thought? Where do you think it all began?
Our days continue whether we like it or not, bringing joy or sadness. Depending on our attachment to things or events, is the difference of whether we find happiness or remain in misery. Some say it is choice, while others still say it is not a choice. I am not attached to either answer.
The truth is…if we are stuck in a dead-end job or have feelings of despair, bringing us deeper into darkness, we have the potential to climb out…reaching for brighter days and magical moments. But do the forces of nature seem to be against us? or do we feel others are against us?
Let it all go…even the thoughts of wanting to be happy. Let it all go…and just be happy. How do we get there? Shake it up…doing something your heart beckons to do. Spice it up, change the scenery and beliefs of circumstantial happiness. “But it is not possible” they say, “you don’t know what I have been through” they continue.
Sure I do not know what they have been through but I have met enough people whom, no matter what, remained in happiness.
Bill was a man who lost his wife, diagnosed with diabetes, quadruple bypass surgery and double amputee….just below the knee…and that was all in one year! When asked how in the world he could be happy, he replied with the most simplest of answers “I could choose to let all those things bring me down, robbing me of happiness throughout the day or I could choose to see the day as it was the first, like a child in awe of the many splendors it has to offer. I would change up my day as to bring something new into my life, searching for something I have never done or seen before. Seeking happiness, happiness finds its way into my heart.”
If Bill could do it, I thought…I surely can do it! Counting my blessings daily, I find more to count during the next. If I cannot count the blessings or get out of the rut I have created…then maybe it is time to spice things up a bit, changing my scenery and finding something new for the day to present to me.
The spice of life remains a mystery while happiness remains in the heart.~Ani Po
